The National Centre for Text Mining, School of Computer Science, University
of Manchester, offers one fully-funded BBSRC studentship associated with the
SABR ONDEX (http://www.ondex.org/) project. 


The successful applicant will be part of a team working in text mining in
systems biology at the National Centre for Text Mining www.nactem.ac.uk
<http://www.nactem.ac.uk/> .  She or he will also work directly with a team
of systems biologists (MCISB, http://www.mcisb.org/) who are involved in the
construction of computational models and who will act as users of the text
mining results as well as domain specialists. NaCTeM and MCISB are located
at the Manchester Interdisciplinary Biocentre (www.mib.ac.uk
<http://www.mib.ac.uk/> ). The PhD candidate will investigate the
recognition of contradictory evidence for molecular interactions from
biomedical text using a combination of deep parsing, textual entailment and
ontologies for pathway construction. 


For eligibility and further particulars please see


The studentship is available for three years.
